Live: Is advanced nuclear ready for liftoff?

This week, we explore what it will take to build a lasting advanced nuclear industry in America.

On The Carbon Copy podcast this week:

Our show this week was recorded live at the Nuclear Energy Assembly conference in Washington, D.C. It comes in three parts. 

First, we discuss how to prepare the U.S. nuclear industry for liftoff. We’ll dig into a new government strategy to bridge the gap to commercialization in nuclear and a range of other deep decarbonization tech.

Then, we consider what a grid saturated with renewables, storage and new nuclear would look like. What are the ways these technologies can work together?

And finally, we look at some investment trends across clean energy: where the capital is flowing and where it’s not flowing, and whether the backlash against environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.

Jigar Shah, director of the DOE’s Loan Programs Office, and Katherine Hamilton, chair of 38 North Solutions, join Stephen Lacey on stage for a wide-ranging conversation on the future of nuclear.
